International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs
The International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs (IISE) is a dream-factory where participants from all over the world share visions and acquire all necessary skills to create social change.
The IISE welcomes participants, all over 22 years of age, whom have overcome significant life challenges ranging from vision impairment, disability, poverty, war, discrimination and exploitation. Most of them have personally experienced adversity or witnessed a particular situation that they wish to change so others do not suffer. They have a passion to make the world a better place and the strength to be forces of good rather than victims of circumstance.
The IISE does not select its participants according to pre-education/degrees.
What we are looking for are motivated and dedicated individuals who have the potential to start and run a social project.
For those who are selected, the IISE offers an 11 months high profile and unique leadership course. This course is conducted by international experts who help the participants to develop all necessary skills to succeed as social innovators.
The 2012 course will take place from Mid January 2012 till mid December 2012.
To ensure high quality training the IISE accommodates a maximum of 30 participants per academic year who are chosen through a stringent 5-step selection process.
If you know of potential participants, please do inform them about the existence of the IISE course and refer them to our website at
Also please send the above poster and this letter to anyone else you think would know of potential participants including individuals, your social network contacts, organisations, student leaders etc. Feel free to print the above poster and post it where you believe it will reach potential change makers! If possible, post this letter and the Poster on your website as well. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your consideration.
